I was just wondering if you think your baby knows mama or at what age they do. I mean I know my baby for sure knows I am the one with the food. I have noticed that my baby is actually more fussy with me than anyone else. I thought I was just a bad mom but now I am wondering if it is because he knows it is mama. I have a boy and if I didn't know better I would say he is already a mama's boy. I am only allowed to hold him certain ways but anyone else can hold him lots of ways, etc? Other people can put him down and he is fine but if I am in the room he fussy until I am holding him.

Anyone have any experience with this?

Mine definitely knows who I am. She hears my voice and it soothes her and sometimes she just wants me to hold her. Once I hold her she calms down, no food necessary. I think they definitely know.

Mom to 4 beautiful kids! 3 on Earth and 1 in heaven. Our little girl, Matilda Hope had Down Syndrome. She was born with TMD, a disease that is like leukemia. She fought that and beat it. Then, she had liver failure. She beat that, too. On October 17, 2014 she had NEC, necrotizing enterocolitis. My baby went to Heaven on October 19, 2014. She lived exactly one month.

I believe they know from conception! Lol Clara smiles a lot faster when she sees me than with anyone else so I know she recognizes me. She is also more fussy around me but she knows I have the good stuff and she wants it fast! Lol

BIG thank you to *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

I don't know if he knows who I am or not LOL since I pump and we both feed out of a bottle, that's why..he doesn't make much eye contact yet either, Anxiously awaiting that

My baby girl is fine with others holding her but if I want to hold her then I better be feeding her. As soon as I pick her up she wants to eat so I know she knows who I am. Also she smiles for me and DH all the time but has rarely smiled for anyone else.
